    Primal Fuel
    Had my friends round earlier and made them an amazing (if I do say so myself) antipasti table - olives, sun dried toms, cherry toms, peppadew peppers, raw peppers, mixed leaf salad, proscuttio, chorizo, grapes, dates, prunes, various olive oils, chili peppers, and about five different kinds of cheese, and strawberries. They looked like they had died and gone to heaven. I made them watch Blue Crush, and despite their manly protestations I know they loved it. Then I went for a run in my vibrams, my first run this year, along the river with my fiancee. We were out about 90 mins all in all. It was fab. Now resting with my feet up and a cheeky glass of prosecco. Sausages and salad for dinner later.

    I'm doing really well ,thanks for asking. I'm finding the flexible low calorie approach suits me really well. For me aiming for 500 is good, I have 2 good meals but have enough extra calories that if i have a hungry day i can add in bacon and egg with no worry. Conversely if i have a day when i'm apathetic about eating i can just defrost some oxtail soup scramble some eggs and eat a bit of fruit and not stress about going hypo.

    god, no. I don't feel like that at all. I've just luckily found the information that's helping me find what my body seems to benefit from but am really still finding my way. I'm the woman who gained over 100lbs in 3 years following a specialist hospital prescribed diabetic "eating for health" diet. It took me those 3 years to realise if this diet was helping me I wouldn't be gaining weight every week with blood sugars that were never improving.
    These last couple of months I seem to be constantly finding the right people with the right knowledge at the right time.

    Oh carbdodger that sucks - you must be so relieved to find something that works.

    500 cal day today, just green tea and hot water with lemon til 7pm, then a dinner of pollock wrapped in a slice of parma ham with fresh mint and rosemary and a little butter, one boiled egg, broccoli, 1 cup tea with whole milk, and three strawberries.

    yep, it sucks to be dense . 33 days of this WOE and my blood sugars approaching normal on a regular basis and I've lost over 30lbs so it is a relief.
    I had a kick ass lamb steak for dinner and its given me a sense of enormous well-being!

    1400 calories yesterday.

    Breakfast: black coffee, green tea

    Lunch: bistro leaf salad with cucumber, orange pepper, fresh rosemary, tinned tuna, and mayo

    Dinner: 3 egg omelette with chorizo, extra strong cheddar, red pepper, cherry tomatoes, red onion, chili olive oil, fresh red chili pepper, piquante peppers, sun dried tomatoes, and spinach

    Snacks: 25g beef jerky, 1 whole nut Dairy Milk bar (naughty)

    15 mins 5k dumbbell workout

    I also hit 142lbs - meaning that despite one of my typical awful periods which make me gain like crazy, I have lost 7lbs in two weeks. Yay!
